I have a hard time accepting embodied philosophies (the embodied mind, etc.). However, MW —taking into account how conservative and general their definitions are—has a definition which surprised me:

    em·body
    2a: to deprive of spirituality

No, wait I agree. Yes, the mind is embodied; it is trapped.

The definition for body is also interesting. The body is defined and referred to using the same language, in both its states of a dead and living person. What about the mind? All the definitions for mind relate to the conditions of being alive, as if the mind is gone when the body changes state.

It's all backwards.
